'You Are' celebrating your last Birthday as a Father to Two. On your Birthday 'Wish List' you would be smart to include some 'Down' time with your wife. Enjoy a quiet moment on your 'Porch'. 'Go' to the 'Oceans' and frolic 'Amongst the Waves'... because 'Once' your third baby arrives, you both will fall into a 'Black' cave of confusion and out-numbered chaos.
You may possibly have a son. Maybe, you will name him 'Jeremy' after your 'Brother'. You will dream big for your son... possibly hoping he will follow in your 'Footsteps' and become a well-educated, community leader. Though you will always pray he will break any bad 'Habits' of the Father and become an even 'Better Man' than you.
Or maybe, you will be blessed with yet another beautiful 'Daughter'. 'Faithfull' to her parents and sisters. Tough enough to squash her own 'Bugs'... sweet enough to carry a 'Corduroy' bear and smart enough to stay far away from creepy men nicknamed 'Dirty Frank'.
If you ever need any, I've 'Got Some' advice... or check with your sister... maybe just some wise 'Elderly Woman Behind the Counter in a Small Town'. Do not try to over-plan or perfectly-organize because #3 has already taught you...'Nothing is as it Seems'. Regardless of the gender, that third baby is going to crash into your quaint life like a 'Force of Nature'. Change is most definitely 'Around the Bend'.
At least one day, when you face your 'Immortality' and glance back at the 'Rearview mirror' of your past, you will comfortably know you did not live a 'Life Wasted'. You have created a family based on a 'State of Love and Trust'. Boredom was 'Not for You'.
Happy 31st Birthday.
